Just got turned on to Ghibli, a very cool new project from Edmonton’s Thomas Michael, of Jaded Hipster Choir. This is only his first single, but mega promising – too early to tell of course, but…is this Canada’s James Blake arriving?
Toronto’s Trust is one of the bands working right now that best emphasizes the sound that Silent Shout was founded on. Candy Walls, their new song, is a haunting, melodic, and ultimately danceable piece of electronic awesome. The song will be released on a 7″ on March 29 on Sacred Bones. Along with Austra (in which Maya from Trust plays), Toronto has a really good thing going these days when it comes to dark electronic pop.
